Gastric emptying (GE) may be measured by recording changes in epigastric impedance (EPI), as the stomach fills with, and subsequently empties, a liquid of low electrical conductivity. We have evaluated this method, and used it to record physiological and pathophysiological changes in GE. In 45 healthy children (27 M, 18F; mean age 8.9 years, range 7 mo-17y… CONTINUE READING
